Former BBC HQ

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 5 April 2015 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

I recently spent a day up in Newcastle with "Junior" and his girlfriend and decided to shoot some frames with the intention of making HDRs. Many of the scenes are "revisits" but Photomatix is so good at ghost masking now that I decided to get some shots with people in them. The process for masking out "ghost movements" is so simple and so good that you simply cannot be afraid of including moving people in your three frames now.

This building was originally the Lying In Hospital for the Poor, which acted as an emergency maternity ward in the early 1700s, it was later used for many years as the regional headquarters for the BBC and all of its radio and television output was produced here. Now it is incorporated as part of the Newcastle Building Society.
